Decorating Colors - Happy Go Yellow

I have had a series of blogs highlighting articles in the most recent issue of House Beautiful and feel I should give other magazines their due.  The September, 2011, issue of Traditional Home http://traditionalhome.com features three designers' use of yellow or gold in their work.  Julie Kays says, "I used yellow because it reflects light instead of absorbing it.  And the color changes the room's personality to a happier one."  Barry Dixon introduces a bright yellow to his palate saying, "We needed a color to ignite the room with warmth and sparkle".  Camille Saum uses a lovely yellow to cover her dining room chairs and add an element of surprise to her rooms.  I LOVE yellow - using it throughout my house as the primary wall color.  I have used three colors from single paint strip to do 80% of my house.  Yellow and gold in upholstered furniture can be combined with almost any and all color groups and works in contemporary and traditional settings.  As these designers acknowledge, yellow equals happy and fun!
